Have pain on front of neck on drinking cold water. Had strep throat. Could it be GERD?

Every time I drink cold water. The pain start out little and get worst and worst the more cold water I sip on. I get the pain on the front side of my neck. I even get this if I am in the pool. It does not hurt to eat or drink hot thinks. Just cold drinks. I was sick with a Strep throat in Feb which they gave me antibiotic for and EBV (mono) which blood work said last week I am almost over it. The Dr. was say this might be GERD but not sure? I have no of the Gerd sign after look it up.

Hi,
Thanks for contacting HCM
as your doctor diagnosed GERD and you have no sign of the GERD, but for your knowledge many of the patient of GERD may be silent, therefore faith in your doctor and continue the treatment for GERD.

Thanks

Hi I am a 17 year old female and about 2 years ago I had chronic strep throat. Since then I havent had a flare up of it. About 5 days ago it came back worse then ever. I can t swallow or eat or drink because the pain is excruciating. I also seem to have a cold because I cannot breathe out of my nose. My doctor gave me amoxicillin but it s not helping. I just took my 5th dose. I ve also been taking ibuprofen for the pain but it s not relieving it a single bit. I ve missed three straight days of school. Both tonsils are swollen but one is huge and hitting my uvula. My throat feels blocked. Dad called the doctor and they said the meds could take up to 5 days to start being effective. It shouldn t feel this bad. I can t even sleep. I also have neck, head and ear pain. What should I do :(

2 days ago I fainted. I am going to try to give as much information as possible. I am 19 years old, 164 lbs, in Florida. The night before I fainted I started getting sick, approximately 4 pm. I first felt a sore throat, then an hour later I felt like 40 lbs of weight had been added on to every part of my body. Sore throat got worse over the next few hours, started to get an ear ache in my left ear, started to feel slightly nauseous. Right before I went to sleep, at approximately 11 pm, I felt like I was going to vomit. I ate an ice pop and this feeling went away, I laid down, extremely tired, and didn t sleep all night long. All night I felt like I was exhausted, but I never managed to fall asleep deeply, I was out for maybe 10 minutes at a time. I woke up at 7:30 am. I got up, and automatically felt like something wasn t right. I go to college and I live in a dormitory, I started walking down the hallway and I started seeing colors, waves, and dots, in the way that you see when you close your eyes and push on your eyelids with your fingers, the way children sometimes do, they were yellow and orange, and I knew that wasn t good. I had felt vertigo before and fainted one time when I stood up too quickly from vertigo, but that was 3 years ago and I know what caused that, that time I was lying down and tired and just jumped up and then resisted the urge to tilt my head down when I knew the feeling of vertigo just to see what happened, and then I fainted. Other times I would just tilt my head down, and it would go away. So it was the same kind of feeling, like blood wasn t getting to my brain vertigo type of feeling. Except with blurriness and colors and waves and dots superimposed in front of what I was actually seeing. So when I saw this, remembering the vertigo feeling from a long time ago, I got on my knees and knelt my head down to the floor and waited for it to go away. It did, I walked down the rest of the hallway to the bathroom, but the vertigo feeling was still there just much weaker. Then I got to the bathroom and started urinating, I still saw the colors and dots and waves and everything, they never really ever went away during this whole ordeal, so I used the bathroom, and at some point fainted. I hit my head on something, most likely the toilet, and then the floor. I know this is important so I will try to be as concise as possible with time, I was peeing in a standing position, I woke up on the floor, in a pool of my own urine, but still peeing, so in my opinion, I couldn t have been out for anything more than 15 seconds, because I was still peeing, on the floor, with my head on the floor, laying there. Immediately upon regaining sovereignty over myself I got up and attempted to finish peeing, I couldn t have been standing up for more than 5 or 6 seconds before I fainted again, hit my head on either the walls of the stall or the toilet on the way down, then hit the floor. Again it couldn t have been more than a couple seconds, because I woke up not peeing anymore but still had some urine inside of me, I got up slower, peed a tiny bit more, then started walking back to my room, soaked in my own urine. I must have looked drunk to anyone in the hallway, this is college that is the automatic assumption, because I was swaying from side to side in the hallway as I walked. I should point out that I had not drank alcohol in 5 days and that I do not do drugs of any sort, and that I have no medical history of any kind of disease, no diabetes, etc., no epilepsy, I hope I m not omiting something that would be important. So I get back to my room, lay down, and I feel like my body is 10 degrees Fahrenheit. I was freezing, freezing, yet sweating a lake onto my bed. I had terrible cold sweats for about an hour, and chills that would run up and down my whole body. This is out of order but I forgot to mention earlier that the night before, when I felt a ton of weight on my body and got the sore throat, while I was nauseous right before going to bed, I was getting chills that ran up and down my body, but I felt fine, not hot or cold, just chill-type reactions, I hope that makes sense. Like when people s hair stands up on the back of their neck. That kind of chill. So I got that again the next morning, but also cold sweats, after fainting. That slowly went away. I drank some fluids. I should also point out that I felt the previous night like I had a fever, but didn t check. And I felt like I had a fever all morning and all day after fainting, but never checked. All day I stayed in bed, it was hard to move around, every time I tried to switch laying positions I felt slightly vertigo-ish. Sorry for my improper English. It s the best description. About 10 hours later I went to the Urgent Care Clinic. There I was diagnosed with strep throat. They said that the fainting could be caused by my body already being weak.. EKG was normal, vitals normal, no sore throat. I felt fine that evening. Hoping for any explanation.Thank you

I recently have this very sharp pain from my stomach all the way to the upper left chest. When pooping. It happens twice now. It really freaks me out when it happens. Prior to that Ive experienced that chest pain twice when lying on bed.. at first, I thought it was just because am having an acid reflux. But now, am starting to feel that this is not just that. Please help.

I am having sever stomach pain, it started several weeks ago and has gotten gradually worse. I have no insurance, so I went to the county hospital last week. Once in the emergency room, they ran blood tests to check for H-pilori bacteria. Those were negative. They sent me home with antacids. I went back and the doctor told me I was a drug addict and binge drinker. This was what I get for that. I don t understand the closed mindedness. I don t do either. Never have, although I understand their typical patient. However, I am not one of those, I just have to herd with the cattle at county. I have chronic heart burn, and acid reflux. I most likely take more ibuprofen than I should(historically) and have stopped in the last month after learning more about the side effects. I am highly stressed and have patches of hair falling out on my beard, and head for the last 4 years now. More than likely these are contributors to this problem. Now I am in more pain, and throwing up small amounts of blood. Should I go back to ER? Demand CT, and scope of my stomach? What do I do?

Hello, beginning 4 days ago I began to have hiccups, and they are still with me today. Im unable to sleep. Then theres the acid reflux and burning pain when I swallow food as im swallowing corrosive battery acid. Was some nausea earlier. Are these two related? And what should be done firstly to address the hiccups and sleep deprivation. I am taking prilosec and mylanta and little food. Thank so much and have a great day.

I went to a GI doc because I was having sharp/brief pain in the gallbladder area (this has happened sporadically for past 2 years) then I started getting odd bloating/full feeling in Dec with increased pain. Ultrasound showed gall bladder was fine (this was 3rd ultrasound), but liver was possibly slightly enlarged. My liver enzymes were slightly elevated-but next test came back normal and I don t have Hep C. Upon chatting with doc, she thought I might have acid reflux issues and gave me antacids-my symptoms actually got worse but it did help with what I had initially was wheezing at night (which is why she suspected acid reflux)-though now even that has returned. NOW I feel so full/bloated that it s actually hard to breathe or sit--after a meal or anytime really whether I ve eaten or not...I am so absolutely frustrated and feel that I m being made to do a food diary to see if something triggers it when anything triggers it and nothing too...it s just continuous. As a note, this started in Dec and I started with antacid meds just in Jan...and the breathing issues have been about 2 weeks now...so driving me mad and I m actually short of breath talking even at times...I talk talk talk to the doc and it s lets follow up in 6 weeks...6 weeks of trouble breathing or eating even? I m stunned...and work in the medical field myself...and I m just still stunned and not knowing what to do right now...
